Library Journal Review

Littman's (The Women's Business Resource Guide) latest book is essentially another resource guide. This helpful, clearly written work offers practical advice and tools for parents looking to combat the self-esteem problems of their daughters. Plummeting self confidence is prevalent among adolescent girls, and Littman worked with an advisory board of young women aged 17 to 19 and also culled responses from more than 80 other young women to compile hands-on information about what sort of support girls this age need to flourish. The book's first four sections address different facets of adolescent girls' lives: "Family First," "Girl Power!" "Her Body, Her Self," and "What Can She Be?" The last section provides a comprehensive listing of resources, including publications and organizations mentioned throughout the book. Highly recommended for all public libraries.√ĄSheila Devaney, North Carolina State Univ. Libs., Raleigh (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
